Sanitation in the form of a water tap and now the first toilet in Rigul village are
now both available to the community in this remote part of Tibet, funded by your
donations to Rigul Trust.
Previously the families of this mountainous region had to transport cooking and washing
water from the nearby river by hand, even through the harsh winter months. And now
a toilet to serve the community has been been built by the local people to bring
modern sanitation too. Khenpo Shenge has sent us these photos of the toilet construction
work whilst under way and of the children using the new tap.
